Being social? Hashtag it!


I had a teacher in the middle school ask me if we had any hashtags going on for the school or district so that he could use them while being social about what's going on in school. Great question! Since I didn't know of any, I did some searching.
  • #BonnyEagle is being used by students (mostly high school), teachers, and staff around the district.
  • #BonnyEagleMS and #BonnyEagleHS are not being used, but would be easy to use for school specific sharing.
  • #BonnyEagleTech has minimal use, but Rich Peterson and I are using it to share about the tech department and tech-related thoughts.
So, if you are looking to incorporate more social aspects into your classroom, try using those hashtags to bring the outside in a bit more.

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
